Launchpads do not need wi-fi or internet, and are only available through public libraries. With content covering Early Literacy, Language Learning, Math, Reading, and STEAM, Launchpads offer curated learning activities. In addition, children will learn, practice, and improve their digital literacy skills.

You may borrow up to 5 Launchpads at a time. Each comes with its own charging cable.

Launchpads can:
